I Wanted My MTV: An anti-VMAs party

Aug 25, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - Aug 26, 2013 @ 12:00 am

The MTV Video Music Awards are in Brooklyn for the first time this weekend, but MTV hasn’t been cool in ages, and the network holding its seminal event in the capital of cool surely will include some cloying attempt at honoring BK’s music history (leave Adam Yauch alone!) Come party with us as we celebrate the golden age of MTV, with ACTUAL VIDEOS! We’re hosting a big, FREE party called I Wanted My MTV down the road at Last Exit on Sunday, featuring lots of relics of MTV’s glory days. Details below:

Instead of griping about how MTV has long ago traded videos for shows about pregnant millennials and turbo-charged bennies, let’s celebrate the good days!

I WANTED MY MTV

-Actual classic MTV videos from our friends at the Golden Age of Music Video
-Special MTV themed cocktails
-MTV-branded karaoke (circa 2001)
-Classic music television celeb photo booth!
-Retro MTV games, including REMOTE CONTROL!
-Justin Beiber dart board
-Pin-the-sunglasses-on-Robin-Thicke
-Possibly a guy in a Blind Melon bee suit (?!?)
-Late night screenings of The State (if everyone sticks around long enough)

Come down and have some fun, and let us never speak the name Snooki again.

RSVP on Facebook here.

Thanks to Last Exit for hosting, The Golden Age of Music Video for VJing and Meghan Doherty for the poster!
